Color Keying in Art and Living
A study of color relationships. Employs abstract demonstrations of color deceptions followed by practical applications. Color relations are applied to art subjects and to aspects of everyday life such as hair, eyes, complexion, dress and home decoration.
Ken Smith sez: If you know nothing about art, fashion or beauty -- like me -- you may find the idea of color keying intriguing. In typical, dull, EBF fashion, Jim Brill first explains to the differences between light primaries (additive) and pigment primaries (subtractive) and the weaknesses of the latter. This leads to color keying: the art of placing "complementary" colors in proximity to one another to create flattering or dramatic effects. Mr. B may be dull but the demonstrations he narrates are very striking; at least this film is interesting to look at.
By the way, "living" as it is defined by this production is the art of facial make-up, dress colors, and interior design, so you can kind of guess which sex this film was targeted toward. "Keyed color contributes contrast and brilliance to many phases of our existence."
